Pumpkin Spice Cake with Orange Zest Glaze

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Orange Zest Glaze

You know it’s properly Autumn when you start thinking about pumpkins! Most pumpkins bought for Hallowe’en carving purposes are definitely not worth the effort of cooking (they are grown for size, not taste – although to be fair, pumpkin flesh tastes of virtually nothing anyway; […]

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Sweetened condensed milk is one of those naff ingredients that is actually pretty handy to have in the cupboard as the key ingredient for all kinds of tooth-rotting deliciousness such as caramel, no-churn ice cream, banoffee pie and fudge. Recipes like salted caramel millionaires – definitely one of […]

Kid-Friendly Katsu Curry (Vegan)

I only just recently found out about katsu curry. It’s a Japanese curry which is essentially a smooth mild sauce (think chip shop curry sauce, guys – sorry Japan) poured over breaded chicken, veggies and rice. I saw it mentioned again and again when I […]

Wholewheat Fusilli Rapid Ragù – Our Favourite Speedy Supper

How’s your week going? I have spent most of it dressed in multiple layers of knitwear whilst clutching hot water bottles, slouching around the house like some frost bitten sloth. I don’t tolerate the cold particularly well (my most-used winter phrase is “I’ve got poor […]

Freestyle Falafel

Freestyle Falafel

I did a killer yoga workout this morning. Although I am quietly shedding excess weight since embarking on my vegan diet this month, my main goal is to tone up again after the chocolate-induced sag of Christmas! I was so hungry after all the stretching today, […]
